Businesses are primarily contacted via text messages and phone calls, with additional company visits scheduled. The campaign week also features events: traditionally, the municipality hosts a business lunch on Wednesday, April 10th. Additionally, on Thursday, April 11th, there is a coaching session focusing on utilizing AI in business.
